With this order, OMIC R&D acquires the capabilities of high-pressure Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing technology, enabling the production of multi-metal parts, large-scale titanium parts, and the manufacture of multi-metal coatings. These applications are reputed to be highly effective in overcoming longstanding manufacturing challenges and provide desirable outcomes across a wide range of industries, including defence and aerospace.

“At Titomic, we’re excited about the progress being made with key players in the US aerospace and defence sectors, including OMIC, a leading commercial R&D company advising major US aerospace and defence primes,” stated Herbert Koeck, Managing Director of Titomic. “After years of diligent work and testing, Titomic is now developing scalable commercial opportunities and establishing key relationships in an industry experiencing significant global investment from both government and private sectors. Our journey has just begun.”

This purchase enables Titomic to expand the reach of R&D initiatives by providing access to Titomic’s Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing to US-based industry through OMIC R&D. This expected to lead to further knowledge disseminating on the benefits of the technology, possibly leading to further opportunities for Titomic’s sales conversion and growth.

Joshua Koch, OMIC’s Business Development Manager, commented, “OMIC R&D aims to be the first centre in the United States dedicated to supporting industry adoption of Additive Manufacturing in an economically sustainable manner. By bringing all major forms of industrial Additive Manufacturing equipment under one roof, OMIC R&D can address the technology integration challenges and hesitations manufacturers face today.

“Titomic, a leader in cold spray technology, brings invaluable systems and support to this endeavour. We look forward to collaborating with Titomic to develop applied solutions that enable companies to make data-driven decisions about Additive Manufacturing.”
